In the Spring (Apr) I just published my 2nd book on blogging, Creative Blogging, and in the beginning chapters we covered “grammar” related topics. I went over a few basic mistakes in grammar, but stressed that in general blogging content is more relaxed and conversational (as well as FB more so). That you are not really bound to the “grammar” rules in writing a manual or essay. You are more free to “chat” in a tone or style that suits you and your personality, and style of your business and blog.
I write how-to articles so they are normally easy to read, basic grammar and style. I do love to use smiley faces as it’s part of my personality
However, I do tell people to use the Spell Checker in any event. But we all make mistakes and Spell Checker doesn’t always pick up everything. So proof reading is good. Some people have extra staff they can hire to proof read.
So although content can be more relaxed and conversational, it should be well written (without obvious spelling errors for example).
That’s just my two cents…LOL.
